  • Dysarthria

    Dysarthria is a motor speech disorder. It results from impaired movement of the muscles used for speech production, including the lips, tongue, vocal folds, and/or diaphragm. The type and severity of dysarthria depend on which area of the nervous system is affected.

     

  • Dysarthria

    Symptoms:

    • Slurred speech
    • Slow speech
    • Inability to speak louder than a whisper or speaking too loudly
    • Rapid speech that is difficult to understand
    • Nasal, raspy or strained voice
    • Uneven or abnormal speech rhythm
    • Uneven speech volume
    • Monotone speech
    • Difficulty moving your tongue or facial muscles
  • Dysarthria

    Diagnosis:

    A speech-language pathologist (SLP) can evaluate a person with speech difficulties and determine the nature and severity of the problem. The SLP will look at movement of the lips, tongue, and face, as well as breath support for speech and voice quality. The assessment will also include an examination of speech production in a variety of contexts.

  • Dysarthria

    Treatment:

    • Slowing the rate of speech
    • Improving the breath support so the person can speak more loudly
    • Strengthening muscles
    • Increasing tongue and lip movement
    • Improving speech sound production so that speech is more clear
    • Teaching caregivers, family members, and teachers strategies to better communicate with the person with dysarthria
    • In severe cases, learning to use alternative means of communication (e.g., simple gestures, alphabet boards, or electronic or computer-based equipment)
